After The Bell

We are delighted to partner with Ferny Creek Primary School to provide families with an enriching, Before and After School Care program.

OSHCare4KidsWe at After The Bell acknowledge that children’s learning and development are significant within their school environment, which also translates to Outside School Hours Care. We are passionate and enthusiastic professionals who ensure your child is provided with a safe, nurturing and fun experience at our programs.

Our programs combine recreation, creativity, quiet areas and a homework area, in a stimulating, adaptable, flexible, unstructured and structured environment. Our centres provide an atmosphere that gives children with a sense of belonging and involvement with the opportunity for them to pursue their current interests and maybe even develop new ones. Children will strengthen friendships and form new friendships that will last a life time.

We value the importance of children’s health and nutrition. At After The Bell, children are provided with a healthy nutritional breakfast and afternoon snack each session. Children have input into the program menu so their food choices are considered. Of course at all times we adhere to strict Food and Food Handling Guidelines and children are encouraged to learn the value of good healthy eating choices.

Our programs are led a developed by our team of qualified, trained and highly skilled educators. After The Bell requires that all our centre staff are Star Quality Certified.

Star Quality Certified means on top of their required National and State qualifications our staff have additional training and qualification in Food Handling, First Aid, Anaphylaxis training, Behaviour Training and Child Protection Training.
